This exhibition is an example of the many talents of MP HIPsters. By reflecting on our different identities and what makes each of us unique, HIPsters have created works of art that embody and celebrate their individuality.

They explored the various emotions, backgrounds and experiences that make them each unique and how they might translate an abstract concept into a work of art seen by an audience. While creating their artwork, the HIPsters worked on learning about professionalism and the process of creating and leaving their pieces when displayed. Matt, HIPster said: “This is my first year in art at MP, and I didn’t realize it was an outlet for me. Painting and drawing is so relaxing. I didn’t know I was I was so good at it. If I paint something I like, I’m happy! “These HIPsters are artists and should be seen as such. They put their heart and soul into it. Art is therapy for HIPsters. It allows them to open up to those around them, find their voice and express themselves,” said Anné Keever, Programs Coordinator at MP.

“Walking into North Park, I felt proud knowing that the work of our HIPsters is displayed in an iconic Dallas destination. The first thing I saw were photos of their smiles, and it immediately reminded me of our hallways during the transition, full of joy, laughter and personality. The art of HIPsters is worthy of a gallery and the masterpieces showed a glimpse of their lives with a confident view of themselves. Seeing their art brought me into a flood of emotions. The green word shield brilliantly showed the power of MP. We plant seeds of opportunity that inspire and empower HIPsters to believe and succeed,” said Eduvijes Perez, COO of MP.

The exhibit is located at the NorthPark Center in Dallas, on the first level between Nordstrom and Macy’s. The work is visible until June 29, 2022.
